The Brick Thread—a straightforward concept! Follow the brick trail outlined in blue through the streets of Roubaix, introduced as a way to invite visitors and tourists to rediscover the city from a different angle—it passes by La Piscine, of course, but also everything else: the Gare de Roubaix, the Hotel de Ville, the Archives Nationales du Monde du Travail (National Archives of the World of Labor), the Colonne aux Baisers, La Goutte de Lait, and all of the other sites that helped Roubaix earn its distinction as a City of Art and History!

Along the way, follow the trail of totems which provide information about the city, or, join our guides who are available each Saturday morning at 11:30 to lead groups on a visit of the city centre by way of the Brick Thread !
